  1. I'll let you know if I get any rain on me the rest of this year. I'm down to about 10 games left now.
  2. It was scratched up, so I thought I'd just go ahead and put a new look on it as well. And if the visor idea is to block the sun, then a blacked out visor would certainly stop light coming through completely was my thought.

  4. @ofhs93 @blue32 @BT_Blue @tjohnson I have had transactions with the above gentlemen, some of them both buying and selling, and these men have proven themselves to be trustworthy. They made for great experiences. I wholly endorse all of them.
  5. Wilson - vinyl stripped, black spray paint with blacked out wrap-around pads. Oh, and blacked out visor.
  6. Okay, all this talkabout modifying your own mask inspired me. I bought a couple of old masks on eBay for around 30 bucks each. This morning, I stripped off the vinyl, painted the sunvisor and the mask flat black. Finally, I put on new Wilson wraparounds that I blacked out.
  7. Really good deal on a used Champion hard-shell
  8. Still waiting on my Honigs order to ship. I've called twice today to cancel it, still waiting. Assured by Jenna and Carrie that Sharon has it on her desk and will cancel it by end of today. She's been busy and away from her desk all day they tell me. Never again...
  9. Update: I just called again and actually connected with a person! There was an item on my order that was out of stock (no more coming in either). For the record, they were Reebok Zigs field shoes in size 11. The website has them showing as in-stock for both Black and B&W. Anyhow, they held the entire order and never let me know because they "didn't want to bother me at work" per the lady I spoke with just now. The log jam is now removed, so they say they'll ship it today and I should have by this weekend. I like Honig's, but I'm not sure I will continue working with them if they can't get it together. This is not acceptable. I'm not looking for a handout, but come on - you held my order for a week and didn't offer me anything. I guess I'll have to start using Jim Kirk and Ump Attire. I've heard only the good about them. I really like Purchase Officials too, but their gear offering is limited to only the main brands, so they pretty much are my uniform supply guys.
  10. I placed an order on 6/7... I am still waiting on a shipment date. I tried to cancel and have sent two emails and one message left over the phone - with no response yet. My card hasn't been charged, but my order status shows "Ticket Printed". This is ridiculous! I won't be ordering again if this is their new service experience.
  11. I'm surprised this is still here, I thought several were looking for the Champro Mag mask.
  12. That gunmetal looks pretty good to these eyes! And get some of those classic brown +POS mask pads to go with it!
  13. Yes, I contacted Jeff. They charge $50 for a full refurbishment, but not completely sure what that involves.
  14. Sold @Thunderheads
  15. I recently picked this up for a good price. It was a little dusty from sitting around, but this is a very nice CP. I have cleaned it up with soap and water and worn it a time or two. Thing is, I know have too many CP's and I'm planning on keeping the other two - so I need to move this one. It is well-broken in, by that I mean that it will sit on your shoulders perfectly without trying to ride up. Even the stock harness keeps it in place pretty well, but of course we all recommend an upgrade to the Ump Life if you can afford it. By the way, it comes with the bicep protectors as well - though they are not pictured below. Asking $65 shipped to you. Thanks
